More sophisticated pricing?

How far out in time do others get inquiries for?

Reason for the question is that I was planning on increasing my rates for 2020 and I have started to get one or two inquiries from Thumbtack leads about next year already! Lucky me!

I really don't want to tell people that my quotes will be wrong (or at least different) for work next year but I don't see a way to put in a different price based on WHEN the work is for.

Does anyone have a clue if this is possible?

Re: More sophisticated pricing?

@revbrian that's awesome that you're already getting leads for 2020! As of right now, there isn't an option to put in different prices for future cost changes. That's great feedback though. If you already know what you're going to charge for next year, I would recommend following up with the customer letting them know those prices. Thanks for reaching out.

Re: More sophisticated pricing?

Following up with a pricing change once a quote has already gone in?

My feeling is that this would be a "Kiss of Death" to anyone even remotely undecided about using me.
